For a second Sunday in a row the Deep South is bracing for a round of significant severe weather, and this will be in a similar location to last week's outbreak. An upper-level system will cut across the Southeast. The Storm Prediction Center has already issued a moderate risk for severe weather from eastern Louisiana to southern Alabama. Numerous severe storms will be capable of producing strong tornadoes and a widespread swath of damaging winds. There is also the potential for flooding across northern Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia. Here two to four inches of rain could fall tomorrow.

For the Bluegrass, we will be on the northern fringe of this system. Our severe threat is very low. Clouds will increase early in the day. Spotty showers will be around during the afternoon and evening, especially south of I-64. Showers will end very early Monday. Then we'll enjoy some drier and milder days through the middle of next week.
